The verdict is in...

Test results are in, and my suspicions have proven correct...pregnant.

Very hard to describe the feelings, which are very strong, very complicated and sometimes conflicting! But, on the whole, they can be categorized as "happy".

The Boy held me to my promise to take the test first thing this morning (he has been dying to know for sure...his enthusiasm is super cute:-)). I decided ahead of time that I wanted to tell Munchkin after her soccer game this morning, so it was a little tough to pretend that nothing was happening before then. But we managed.

That also gave me about two (very rainy) hours while I was watching her game to reflect on things. A whole lot of things, since I now seem to have three different monumentally life-changing things happening at once!!! I spent some time talking with some of her teammates parents, but I have to beleive that they felt like I was crazy, since I was totally zoned out...lol. They can chalk it up to wedding and school stress:-) I also made a couple of selected phone calls to some people that I wanted to tell right away. And now, I can be mum about it for another month and a half at least!

I had wanted to go out for a late breakfast right after her game and tell her, but she was soaking wet and filthy and wanted to go home and shower. So, I talked her into a lunch date after she cleaned up, and spilled the news to her there. I can say with a pretty high level of confidence that, should I live to be 100 years old, I will never do anything that is more purely enjoyable than telling my baby sister that I having a baby. She cried with excitement, and then I cried with joy, and then we were just two laughing, giggling, crying messes...our waitress was really confused:-)

Called the doctor, and found out that you are supposed to make two appointments right off the bat...? That was news to me, but I have them both scheduled, which makes it all seem a little more real (assuming, of course, that they confirm that I am pregnant;-)).

But all of that has to wait...I still have a wedding to get through! And one big giant secret to keep during it:-)

I don't know you, but I'm so happy for you. So many women look for a decent, loving man to marry and never find one. So many women find they are unable to have children of their own. You get both! You are one truly blessed gal! I hope you enjoy being a Mom as much as I have. I can say with honesty that having children has made me a better person. You seem to handle your life situations so well...I know you're going to love this new adventure....BOTH of them!

Congratulations :D

I'm not surprised your head is all over the place. Such big events happening all at once is sure to make any one's head spin. I'm sure once the initial shock and excitement have calmed you'll find your sanity again ;) Until then I say roll with the excitement ;)

Congratulations you three!
That’s really great news and I am sure you will handle it just as good as you handled being a Mom for Munchkin.
It's really exciting and I hope we will read a lot about the pregnancy now.
So I can check that out and get your experiences for the day I have to decide if I want to have a Baby. ;-)

So exciting! I'm going to my first doctors appointment on Thursday and can't wait. I didn't know you were supposed to make two appointments, but I'm guessing they'll fill me in on Thursday. :) I can't wait to tell my family this weekend.
